  1. All good on the hardware thanks Brian. The hole punches aren't too bad afterwards. I haven't really used the stingray much yet, that's the first project I have really used it on other than a key ring. I was given some offcuts and thought this was the perfect one to use it on. I used snake on her last bag.
  2. How are you Brian. Might try to head your way again once all this Covid stuff is over. Needing another holiday badly. Im after some brass hardware. 2x 25mm Solid brass trigger swivel snaps, and a brass buckle to match her previous bag I made. And yep that is stingray. Not the most fun leather I have worked with, that stuff is hard to cut. I ended up using Tin Snips then my leather shears to tidy the edges a bit.
  3. Thanks. the pattern is a modified Dieselpunk.ro pattern
  4. Haven't posted for a while, so I thought I would share what I have made recently. First up, is a few coin purses for my neices. and secondly is a nice bag for my mum for mothers day. Unfortunately Im waiting on hardware to arrive to finish the bag so I can send it off.
  5. And as for the leather used, it looks like Veg tanned Bovine of around 1.5-2mm in thickness.
  6. Hey Leathermann00b. As a fellow Brisbane based leather crafter welcome to the group. There are some awesome leather suppliers in Brisbane. Unfortunately they are only open to internet or phone orders and not walk ins until this Covid stuff is over. My favorite suppliers are: - Eastcoast Leather at Mt Cotton ( Trev is an awesome guy). They do run a few workshops through out the year. And they have one of the best range of leather in Brisbane - Maclace Leather at Capalaba. Huge range of tools, dyes, kits, and leather. - Crispins Leather at Wooloowin. Also have a huge range of tools and supplies. Limited on the leather but they do have some. - Lastly Packer Leather at Narangba. Heaps of Kangaroo leather in stock all the time. And also some cheaper hides to buy. Nothing wrong with cheaper hides, except they have a few marks and stretch lines etc. But I like that finish on some products. Where abouts in Brisbane are you located? Send me a PM if you like. Cheers Damien
  7. I have just been up to visit Brian at his awesome workshop this week. And I have to say the quality of workmanship that goes into these is second to none. Brian has peaked my interest and motivation 10 fold. Thanks Brian
  8. Thanks. I seem to get different jobs all the time. Keeps me thinking thats for sure Thanks.
  9. An update on the Mitt for this customer. It is still in use and has been around the world, and with him living in the Philippines for a while, has lasted during severe storms they have endured while living there. Still looks brand new, and gets used every day.
  10. It has been quite a while since my last update. So I thought I would share a few of my latest projects
  11. Had my first real go at doing a little carving for a client. The client found my business page through FB and decided to get her Partner a Tobacco Pouch for her birthday. This is the results. Her Partner loved it, and I thought I done an ok job for my first time carving anything. I used 2mm Veg Tan for the outer, and Veg Kangaroo for the papers holder. Dark Brown Antique dye and Seal 'N'Shine from Maclace and Oakwoods Conditioner to finish it off. A few things I would change next time (Getting a Lettering Craftaid next time). The Client wanted a rustic look. All in all, It came out all right.
